Welcome to playtesting my own campaign!
All information can be found here:
http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/861678/campaign-the-silken-t...

Overview:


Links to the encounters:
Caught in the Web
On the Run E1
On the Run E2
Struggle for Sanity E1

Supply Routes

Current Map


Overlord:
Hand: 6
Deck: 1
Discard Pile: 9

Forum Rules:

Bold your orders! Non-bolded orders will be treated as commentary and will be ignored by me. I welcome discussion/tactical planning but I need to differentiate game moves and fluff at first glance.

No modifying orders/inserting stuff in the middle of posts once posted! Follow-ups after the rolls are fine, however, to avoid multiple-posting.

Please reread your posts before submitting. I can stand some typos but give me too many and my eyes start to hurt after a while and yes, I do enforce it.

If someone makes an illegal/invalid action (i.e. against the rules of the game), all later orders, rolls etc. become invalid and the game rewinds to that point.

Post "End turn" after your turn, or something similar. Also, the last hero posts "Heroes done". If someone doesn't end their turn, it ends automatically after 2 hours. This is simply to help me update and speed up the game.

Maximum delay is 48 hours. The timer is off on weekends and holidays. This is flexible. If you know you can't make it/have an IRL problem/have a local holiday, PM me. If you know you can't continue playing, let me know so I can find a replacement. This is OK with me, given the commitment this campaign requires. Stalling isn't.



Only actions taken within the last 24 hours can be rewound/interrupted. Exceptions only if you PM me beforehand. I want to avoid unnecessary slowdowns.

Information:

We'll use these codes, paste them as your dice in the GeekRoller:

Blue Attack Die:
1custom6{iid:1311394;iid:1311395;iid:1311396;iid:1311397;iid:1311398;iid:1311399}

Red Power Die:
1custom6{iid:1311403;iid:1311403;iid:1311403;iid:1311404;iid:1311405;iid:1311406}

Yellow Power Die:
1custom6{iid:1311411;iid:1311412;iid:1311413;iid:1311414;iid:1311415;iid:1311416}

Brown Light Armor Die:
1custom6{iid:1311400;iid:1311400;iid:1311401;iid:1311401;iid:1311401;iid:1311402}

Silver Medium Armor Die:
1custom6{iid:1311407;iid:1311407;iid:1311407;iid:1311408;iid:1311409;iid:1311410}

Black Heavy Armor Die:
1custom6{iid:1311390;iid:1311390;iid:1311390;iid:1311391;iid:1311392;iid:1311393}

Note: Roller will allow max. 3 kinds of custom dice due to character limit. If you have 4+ different dice, split them into 2 rolls.

PLEASE enter a comment in the roll. It will get rid of the annoying code (it's still visible beneath the post if you really need to)!

(See the recruitment/advice thread for dice examples/link to testing forum)

Descriptions:

I am a fluff description, brave heroes. Italicized text will tell you about your surroundings and give you hints on what dangers and rewards award you in the immediate area. But beware, as looks can sometimes be misleading!

This is a game mechanics text. Big Ugly Monster hits Player for 16 damage -3 armor, Player is knocked out. (no, not really)

Normal text is my commentary.

Background Story:
Last Night at the local tavern of Forge you had a blast of a drinking party! That party escalated in a great brawl, that made the innkeeper throw you out of the location. Drunken you slept in the haystacks with three other booze buddies. The very next morning a heavy hangover wished you a good morning! You and your buddies ordered some food and water for breakfast and as you eat you listened to the crowd around you. Whispers about Rumors of the Southeast you heard - The City of Vynelvale lays in danger you heard. In its surrounding mountains dozen of Spiders and other Monsters poured out of caverns into the plains and roads around the city. Traveling isn't save anymore there!
You look at your booze buddies and realize that they are no ordinary townsfolk. They look more like adventures who could need some coins. So you shout out: "Hey fellas - this calls for business! Lets Ride Southeast to Vynelvale and gather some bounty! How that sounds?"
And so you are riding with three companions somewhere near noon towards the far destiny...


** Intro: Caught in the Web

After many days on your way to Vynelvale you finally reach the northern darkwoods. It is only a daytrip to the City. You notice by glance that the trees are covered in silver gossamer from foot to the upper crown. A lingering danger sends a chill down your spine - the dampened light also isn't well for your mood. You ready your swords and bind your horses to a nearby stump and proceed into the woods. As expected you found yourself quickly surrounded by red glowing eyes in growing numbers! Spiders everywhere!

And not enough - you spot a dark figure in the distance who lurks trough the scrub. You cannot spot any further details right now - but maybe that grim looking sod could give you some answeres before you even reach Vynelvale.


(If you notice typos please write me a pm! thx)


Reinforcements:
At the end of each overlord turn, he may place 1 master cave spider or 1 minion bane spider or 2 minion cave spiders on the entrace, respecting group limits.

Victory conditions:
mysterious dark figure moving off the exit for the ol
slaying mysterious dark figure for the heroes.

I'll happily be the OL or a hero as needed. I'd kinda like to be OL if there's not someone dieing to be the OL since I have yet to get my evil freak on in a PBF campaign zombie

Edit - CK or not?

I'd like to be a hero.

Archetype preference is mage or warrior.

I've played the Knight but not the Berserker before. What are my fellow heroes' opinions?

They will all die horrible deaths from a thousand spider bites!

(ok, well, maybe get KO'ed, and a thousand is not realistic, but it'll at least be mildly unpleasant, unless you're into that kinda thing...)

Going with mage

Leaning towards Shiver for the immobilization, but Kel's LOS ability seems interesting.

Don't own CK, so up for any suggests from my fellow heroes.

It looks like I will be the overlord for this campaign. I'm trying to plan starting monster placement to keep things rolling and need to know if the exit is A9,A10 or M1, N1.

Thanks!

Edit - please give the thread a thumbs up, the mod deserves it for all the hard work he's put into this!
